Unloading my camera, I discovered all the photos I took and forgot about over the last few weeks. Work is in full force, but in another week it will be school holidays. For once in my life, I'm looking forward to them .. almost giddy about it.
Shaily came home at the end of Feb. She was always coming home. Australia was just a holiday for her, then she was going to get back into the swing of things here and decide on her employment or higher education. She's currently still deciding.
Nessa didn't like Australia and told her parents, in a letter that she blue tacked to her closet door before school one day, that she wanted to come home to New Zealand and she listed all the reasons why. Little did she know that two days before she left the letter, her parents already made the decision to pack up and move home.
It all came down to family and how unsettled everyone (them and us) was after their move. They arrived home on Monday night. I wish I had videoed Avi's reaction to seeing everyone. Mitchy said it's the happiest she'd been in months.
They're living with me until their house is ready to move back in to. I like having them here, it's not as bad as I had imagined. I gave myself anxiety over it and everything, but with everyone happy to be home and everything falling back into it's natural place ... a full house doesn't even matter.
She's un poco loco.
